End of the Season
It was a good Christmas here. Robert loves his bass guitar and carries it around the house, picking out tunes. Mary wants to wear her big black boots everywhere. Thomas is thrilled with his iPod. Ben and Zhen Zhen love their new music players and their other toys. I can't wait to put my sundial out in the garden, and I have lots to read. We had great food and saw our families. Lisa and I spent a lot of good time together. I even got writing done.
Now comes the lean season of healthy resolutions and cold January days. But first, the clean up. Today the ornaments go back in their boxes and up to the attic, and this afternoon I toss the tree out on the curb to await its fate. One time is over, and another begins.
